Beauty Favourites 2017

As the year is drawing to a close, I thought I would share some of my favourite products of this year! Not all of the products mentioned are photographed, mostly because they are a little battered from all of the love I give them.

One of my pals brought this back from the states for me in the Spring and I have been obsessed with it ever since. The eye shadow formula is so beautiful, extremely pigmented, buttery and so so easy to blend. The colours are also lovely. I use the lighter colours on the left hand side of the palette really often, for both work and in general. I love the bolder colours as well, especially Love Letter to pair with a pink glitter. Cannot recommend this palette enough! 

I recently ran out of this baby and for a good couple of months I had to use up other eye primers that I had laying about. I can tell you now that none of them are a touch on this eye primer! It glides on really effortlessly and gives you a completely neutral base. Eye shadow works really well on top of the primer and there are zero problems with blending. The primer isn't drying on the eyes at all and it makes such a difference to the staying power of the shadows. You can read more about the primer here if you want! 

For some reason, I don't think I've actually written about how much I love this bronzer before? It has become my favourite bronzer by far and it would take a lot for me to change to another bronzer. It is the perfect matte bronzer, perfect for contouring. The colour is just the perfect bronze, not too orange at all. You don't need to use much for it to go far, and you can layer it on if you want more. It is the right amount of blendable, so that you can put it on exactly where you want it and know it won't budge but you can still blend it out so that you're not left with a sludge of brown on your face. 10/10 g bear recommended. 

This has easily become my favourite makeup remover of all time. It is a cleansing balm that you just put all over your face and then wash off with warm water and a muslin cloth or flannel, and off comes all of your makeup! It even takes off my extremely stubborn lash glue. I used to use the Clinique take the day off balm and loved that, but I found it made my eyes go a little blurry. The Body Shop balm does exactly the same, minus the blurry eyes, and for a much lower price - plus it's cruelty free! It leaves your skin feeling clean and moisturised. The only problem is my laziness and remembering to wash my clothes!

These lashes have become my life this year. I still don't have any eyelashes (yay) so I've been wearing falsies pretty much every day this year. I gave up winged eyeliner this year, because effort, so I needed to make sure that the lashes I was wearing looked ok without it. These lashes are great for this! I get so many compliments on these lashes, with a lot of people saying that they look so natural. I don't think they look hugely natural, but natural enough to not arouse huge suspicion but to also make my eyes look pretty. The band is really flexible and the lashes are really light, which makes them really easy to put on and so comfortable on the eye all day. 

I've spoken about this glue before but it just is the most staple product in my makeup bag. It is easily the best lash glue I've used and would recommend it to anyone and everyone, with or without eyelashes. It sticks on really easily and doesn't budge all day (mostly). I particularly like using dark lash glue, as the light/clear ones dry much more obviously than the dark ones. 

And that concludes my post about my favourite products of this year! Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed. What have been your favourite products this year?

New Year's Resolutions

New year, new me and some brand new unthought of new year's resolutions to keep me occupied going into the new year. None of these are particularly deep or life changing, but I like writing these kind of posts! Also how beaut is this candle? Cally from Cally Loves kindly gifted it to me for my Secret Santa! 

Exercising at 6am

Getting up at 5.45am to do a workout sounds horrendous, and it is at first, but it was something that I kept up for a couple of months before the Christmas festivities set in. Doing the Protein World Challenge really got me into shape and I just felt so much better about everything when I was doing it. I lost weight, I felt fitter, I felt happier and I was definitely more productive in work. Obviously I get tired more quickly in the evening and that alarm in the morning is the devil, but all of the other benefits definitely make it worth it. I will aim to do five times a week, but I will be realistic and be happy with myself if I manage three times. I would like to be a skinny minny for Summer this year and finally look FAF in bikini shots. 

Eating my veggies

To be fair, I am generally good at this but I'm looking forward to getting back into the full swing of healthy meals again. I won't be going vegan or vegetarian but I may try and make one day a week vegan or even one meal a day vegan, as long as I'm getting in all of the nutrients and it tastes good - it makes sense doesn't it? 

Cutting caffeine and alcohol

To be fair I don't drink *that* much of either anyway, but I want to limit them even further. I don't want to depend on caffeine for my energy and alcohol just makes me fat. I find that I am more irritable and prone to pulling out my lashes when I've consumed either of these as well. I am going to limit myself to one cup of tea a day and no coffee, they make me sweat and then I crash once the goodness has worn off. And alcohol will not be consumed unnecessarily, only at events. I think me and bae are going to give up alcohol for January anyway, so hopefully this one will be quite easy to carry forward for the rest of the year. 

Increase the quality of my Instagram

This may be one that I will struggle to keep up with, but a gal can try! I do love it when my feed looks pretty, so I'm going to try and put more effort into my pictures and try to be more active and engaging on the app. Despite the new algorithm, I do want to make my account something I'm proud of. 

Read more books

I have been trying to read more in the evening more before going to sleep and I really like doing it. I used to read loads when I was much younger, but I seem to have stopped a little over the last ten years. So this year I am going to try and read more books and hopefully broaden my vocabulary!

Decrease the hair pulling

This would be lovely but I won't be putting pressure on myself for this one, because it often ends in failure! But I would love to grow back a full set of eyelashes this year and I am going to try (like every year!) to achieve this. I do find it a little easier to not pull now that I'm in work for 10 hours a day with false lashes and glasses on, so fingers crossed!

What are your resolutions for 2018? Anything new or different? Thank you for reading!

Christmas at John Lewis

As you probably already know, I love a good event. So I was pretty excited to get invited to the John Lewis Christmas recently in Birmingham. Not only did I get to see some of my lovely blogger friends, I also got to get a real taste for what John Lewis has to offer this Christmas.

The first thing we were shown were the new Twinkly lights, and I am obsessed. They are essentially Christmas lights on a string that you would typically put on your Christmas tree. But these lights are different. These lights can be connected to an app on your phone! As you can imagine, us bloggers were pretty excited about this! These lights can be configured completely on your phone. You can choose what colours go where, their speed and what time you want the lights on and off. Pretty exciting stuff! They showed us a couple of settings that they had made earlier and some pre-set settings, I personally really liked the rainbow setting! 

Next up was the Christmas food selection! Your greedy little g bear was very content with this selection. If you're a keen carb and Prosecco enthusiast, you will love the Prosecco Panetonne! The most delicious bread cake with that little taste of Prosecco. I was also VERY sold on the Prestat Popping Pink Prosecco White Chocolate Truffles, the most beautiful little things! And of course, for all our blogger dreams, the Unicorn Tears Gin was brought out! Definitely a lovely idea for your gin lover. 

And of course, my favourite, was the beauty corner! There were a couple of things that caught my eye, the Molton Brown Advent Calendar for one and the Men Rock Beard Care Set another. But it was the Marc Jacobs Christmas selection that really stole the show. The Sex Kitten Christmas Cracker is only £13, which includes a mascara and lipstick, an excellent present for your beauty lover if you're on a budget. The Cats Meow set includes five beautiful Marc Jacobs lipsticks for £37. Or if you're feeling very generous, the On The Prowl set at £99 includes a lipstick, mascara, eyeliner, brow pencil and an eyeshadow palette! 

My favourite part of Christmas is the decorations, and John Lewis do not hold back. The Christmas ornaments are so beautiful, I especially love the little glass reindeers. And of course the tree decorations are always a treat to the eye. When I'm earning the big bucks, my tree will definitely be covered in John Lewis. I was particularly drawn to the Maharaja selection, the colours are really vibrant and beautiful. You can buy baubles separately or in sets. It's definitely worth heading to the Christmas floor just to see how beautiful the selection is.

And that brings me to the end of this post.  Obviously there are hundreds of other Christmas goodies that you can fall in love with at John Lewis, but I have covered a few of the highlights for me this year. Hopefully this helps you a little with your Christmas shopping this year! I know it has definitely gotten me in the Christmas spirit! 

Thank you for reading! Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? Are you excited for Christmas?

Easy Hairstyles with Anthony John Salons

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to go to the Anthony John salon in Lichfield for some Christmas hair inspiration! The salon itself is situated in the beautiful Heart of the Country Shopping Village of x just outside Lichfield. I got the train from Birmingham, which was around 40 mins, and then a 5 minute taxi from the station. 

The village is so beautiful - full of old converted barn buildings. Definitely somewhere to visit for your Christmas shopping! The salon itself was decorated with wood and blue interiors. I particularly loved how it was set out, with two upstairs parts and lovely little communal kitchen. The seats were all designed to be quite isolated from each other for a full hands on customer experience. 

Troy was my man of the evening! He showed me how to create beautiful curls with the ghd curlers. These created a really strong curl quickly, as you can see in the photo. I was genuinely impressed by how quickly it was done and I think I'll be asking Santa for my own this Christmas!! These curls were sprayed then brushed out to give the basis of the easy Christmas up dos! 

The first look was a simple small beehive look. To do this, you backcomb the crown of the head, except for the very top layer. Then you take a small section of hair from one side, split it into two pieces and twist them around each other, then pin in in place at the back! Then do the exact same on the other side. You can just pop the pins in wherever you want to get the look that you want! 

The second look is even simpler. You take one big piece from one side of your hair and you can plait or twist it and then just pin to the other side of your head. I think Troy twisted mine. Simples! 

Then the final look, which is my favourite, is probably the easiest of all but looks the most complicated. This is simply, twist and grip. Twist your piece of hair up to your head, then pop it in place with a bobby pin! Do the same with all of your hair and voilĂ ! I will definitely be trying this the next time I have left enough time to get ready! 

All in all, I had a really lovely experience at the salon and I learnt about how easy it is to make your hair look pretty with minimal effort. Hope it provides a little bit of inspiration for your Christmas parties this year!

Thank you for reading!

Protein World 30 Day Challenge

I decided to take up the 30 Day Challenge with Protein World during September, something you definitely would have picked up on if you watch my instagram stories religiously! And now I am here to tell you all about how I got on. 

So what is it? The 30 Day Challenge is a package that you can buy from Protein World. It includes a 4 week exercise plan, the Slender Blend with an accompanying protein shaker (shaker not pictured), protein porridge, fat metabolisers and hunger buster supplements. All of this usually costs £89 but it is currently selling for £72! 

The exercise plan is a little booklet which has all of your exercises in. There are two plans, one for week 1 and 2 and another for week 3 and 4. Both plans consist of 6 workouts; 3 of which are weight training, two HIITs and one general cardio day. 

I really enjoyed the weight training days and enjoyed the HIITs much less. I unfortunately wasn't able to do the general cardio day, as I don't have a gym membership and my knees don't allow me to go jogging. But I do walk for around an hour a day going to and back from work, so that was my excuse! 

The workouts in general took between 20 and 30 minutes, which definitely isn't a massive chunk out of your day! For the first three weeks I did my workouts after work. To be honest, I found this really hard. I don't finish at work until at least 5.30pm and by the time that I got home, I was tired and really couldn't be bothered to do exercise. I did persevere for the sake of this post though! Doing exercise in the evening messes with your social life as well as pretty much taking up your whole evening. I found that I would do the exercise, shower, cook and eat dinner and then it was pretty much bedtime! 

So I switched to getting up an hour earlier in the morning and doing the workouts then. I have enjoyed this so much more! Granted, the 6am alarm is kind of garbage, but once you're up it's fine! You get warm from doing the workout and you don't have to worry about it for the rest of the day AND you get the whole evening to do whatever you want! 

I found the workouts a little difficult in the first week and I was in a lot of pain! But as the weeks went by, I got better and better at them and now I'm really enjoying them. The routine comprises of 5 exercises and you do the routine 4 times. I wanted to cry when I first saw that, it seemed so excessive! But it does go really quickly. I definitely think that the workouts would suit anyone of any level, it just does take a fair amount of commitment. I should note that I did actually miss two workouts in the 4 weeks, as I just couldn't fit them into life.

The one thing I didn't realise before I started was that you do need weights. Luckily I was able to borrow my flatmate's 3kg dumbbells, which I think she said were about £9 from Aldi! There are some cheap ones on Amazon as well. I used my yoga mat for quite a few of the workouts as well.

To be honest, I was pants at taking the supplements. You're supposed to take one of them an hour before food, and another one with food. But not for every meal. I was into my second week of my new job and I just didn't ever remember to take them. So my weight loss results may have been a bit better if I was a bit more organised!

I did really love the porridge though! I will admit though that I only cooked it once. I am one of those people who likes to minimise washing up as much as possible, and the thought of a saucepan to wash after breakfast is a bit much for me! I ended up having around 4 scoops of the porridge with milk just cold every morning. It has 20 servings in it and it recommended 5 scoops. I somehow managed to make it last the full 4 weeks though. I had the chocolate flavour and it tasted amazeballs and it definitely staved hunger off until lunch time.

I was a little bit more useless with remembering to drink the protein shake, the slender blend. I was trying to take it around 4/5pm but I just kept getting distracted by work and just generally forgot - especially in the last week when I was doing my workouts in the morning. I was a lot better when I knew that I would be starving by the time it came to workout if I didn't take the shake. The slender blend has 30 shakes in it and it genuinely tastes really nice - much nicer than some of the other shakes I've had in the past. 

For lunch I pretty much had healthy bolognese with no carbs and for dinner I had fish and veg, sometimes with rice if I remembered! I've since added carbs to my meals because I found I was having bad sugar cravings after meals otherwise. Plus we definitely need carbs. I didn't struggle with the eating too much, I just craved and missed chocolate a lot. I gave up alcohol for the 4 weeks as well. 

So did I lose weight? Yes! I have lost around 4 pounds, according to my potentially dodgy scales. But it's actually on my body that I can see/feel the biggest difference. My body is definitely more toned than it was before and I have lost weight around my stomach/waist area. I'm hoping that my before and after photos show that! They're not the best photos and I'm fairly certain that that mirror makes me look fatter than I actually am. For your information, I was around 8 stone 4 when I started and I'm around the 8 stone mark now. Considering I missed two workouts, didn't do the cardio day and didn't take the supplements - it's not bad!

The best part about the 30 Day Challenge for me though is actually how happy it's made me. I've noticed that I'm genuinely much happier in myself every day and I have so much energy. It is definitely a really good way of giving you a kick up the backside and getting you back into the swing of exercise. I hadn't done any for a year! And now I feel fit again and doing exercise is enjoyable rather than being hard because you haven't done it in so long - if that makes sense? 

Have I managed to carry this on? Yes I have! Or at least I'm currently keeping up the exercise. I've been getting up at 6am every day to do a little workout and I'm weirdly enjoying it. Seeing results has made me really motivated to continue doing it. My little abs are coming through again yay!  I would definitely recommend taking Before and After photos to motivate you. Hopefully I will continue to tone up and lose a bit of fat and carry on feeling really happy and energised! 

For the record, I didn't think I needed to lose weight before doing this. I mean, after taking the after photo I definitely thought I needed to! But I only really wanted to do this to get myself back into exercise and challenge myself to something a little bit new and I'm really glad I did!

And that brings us to the end of this very long post. Let me know what your thoughts are! Have you ever done anything like this? Do you like Protein World's products?

Thank you for reading!

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk

After lusting over Francisca May and Faye Friday's Instagrams since forever, I finally got my hands on the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick & Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Pillow Talk. I think these photos were also inspired a little bit by the Tilbs Twins themselves!

As you most probably know, Charlotte Tilbury herself is a makeup artist who launched her own makeup products. The packaging is so beautiful and I really do love her whole branding. The lipstick comes in her signature gold packaging and the lip liner is in an accompanying gold colour.

The Pillow Talk colour is one of those really staple nude shades. It is a dark pink, muted mauve nude shade that suit a lot of people. The colour is one of those where you can easily overdraw your lip line and create a fuller lip as well, always handy for those of us born with slightly thinner lips! I find the colour is very versatile, it can be worn with a very bold or very neutral makeup look. It is definitely a colour that can be worn every day. 

The lip liner is really easy to use, the formula is creamy enough so that it doesn't tug on the lip but firm enough to allow you to be very precise with its application. Again, it really is great for overdrawing the lip line slightly. It's very pigmented and it feels really comfortable on the lip. The staying power is pretty good.

The Pillow Talk lipstick is from the Matte Revolution range, I much prefer this formula to the K.I.S.S.I.N.G range. The formula is very matte, which means it is a little more stiff when applying. But nothing too difficult to work with! I find it goes on really well on top of the lip liner and it is quite comfortable on the lip, but it does feel quite matte. The lasting power is pretty good in fairness to it. I would say the lasting power is better than the MAC matte lipsticks. It does come off a bit when you eat and drink, especially in the middle. So reapplication is necessary.

As for price, the lip liner is £16 and the lipstick is £23 and I have to say, it is a little bit overpriced. As much as I love the packaging and the colour, £39 is a lot of money to be spending on lip products that need reapplication after eating and drinking. I guess I am just a sucker for a label!

You can buy Charlotte Tilbury in quite a few places, I do love visiting the Selfridges stand in Birmingham. Even if it is always really busy! Bae bought mine from John Lewis when they had one of their price match campaigns on, so you can sometimes get a few quid off! Other than that, I don't often see Charlotte Tilbury on sale/discounted anywhere. I think even Feel Unique exclude them from their discount offers, which is a bit annoying! If you know of places where you can get CT a bit cheaper, do let me know!

What do you guys think about Charlotte Tilbury? Do you like the products? Do you think it is a little bit overpriced?

Thank you for reading!

Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X

tria review

laser before after

laser hair removal before after

If you're an avid Instagram story watcher, you may remember me talking about this little beauty in May! This post is all about that device, the Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X. How pretty is the white and pink packaging?

As you may have guessed from its name, it is a hair removal device which uses laser technology. I have been dying to test out a laser hair removal product for the longest time, so I was very excited to get to test out the Tria 4X! The device boasts of its ability to reduce and remove hair permanently. The science side of the device does baffle me a little. But from what I understand, it works by emitting a red light which targets the melanin in your hair, this then disables the hair follicle's ability to regrow hair. Pretty cool isn't it! 

tria laser 4x

The hand-held device is really easy to use. You shave the area first and then apply the device to your skin! The device makes a little beep when the light is emitted and you can feel a little prick on your skin. The higher your settings are, the more that little prick hurts. I now have it on the highest setting and I don't find it too horrendous! It is a little heavier than I thought it would be, but nothing I haven't been able to get used to. I have been all over the place over the Summer and the Tria was very portable, it resided in my suitcase many times!

As the window is very small, it does mean that using the product can take a little while to use, especially if you're using it on your legs! It takes me a good 20 minutes to do both legs (from the knee down). I have found that you have to charge it up for every time you want to use it as well. It isn't very loud, so you can easily watch TV at the same time! The device can be used on any part of your body. 

I have been using the device on my leg hair and have had some really positive results! As you can see from the Before and After pictures, my hair is much more sparse and thinner. I was shaving and using the Tria once every two weeks, but I could shave in between those two weeks! As long as I shaved before using the product. Unfortunately you can't wax or epilate when using this device. For the sake of the Before and After pictures, I left my leg hair to grow for 2 weeks to show you the results. Apologies for the poor After pictures, I tried really hard to get good lighting but life was not on my side that day! 

The hair definitely takes longer to come through now than before. I find that I can easily go a week without shaving and not feel too self conscious about it. The hair feels less prickly when it comes through and feels finer than before. I feel as though the hair is lighter as well. I did go on holiday between my Before and After pictures, which will probably make the hairs look a little bit lighter as well as my skin is slightly more tanned. 

The device retails at £299 on the Tria website. Obviously, that isn't the cheapest of price tags. But considering how expensive salon laser treatment is, it is quite cheap comparatively! So far, I would definitely say it is worth the money. It is one of those products that only time will really tell, and hopefully the results will continue! I may even update this post in the future. But for now, I am thoroughly enjoying the convenience of being able to shave my legs whenever I see fit!

Thank you for reading! Have you ever used the Tria Laser 4X before? Or had laser treatment at all? Let me know!

John Frieda Frizz Ease Range

Frizz Ease John Frieda

Over the last month or so I have been taming my mane with this fab Frizz Ease range from John Frieda! Although my hair isn't horrendously frizzy, I do notice that it does get a little worse over Summer so I thought I would give these beauties a go.

The Shampoo, Conditioner and Serum are all aimed to try and de-frizz hair, as you could probably work out yourself! The range uses ingredients such as pure coconut oil to de-frizz hair. Not only do the products tame your hair, they actually work in a way to build up "frizz immunity", so that every time that you use them - your hair becomes less and less frizzy!

As I highlight my hair and have relatively curly hair, I inevitably have a layer of frizz on the top of my head. It has never bothered me hugely, much to my mother's despair, but as I have started a proper adult big girl job - I am a little bit more invested in making myself look more presentable.

I have found the combination of all three give me the best results, especially after use of them for a month. My hair is hardly frizzy at all when it's curly now! I've found the condition of my hair is much better as well. My hair doesn't feel particularly silky or anything, but it is quite soft and it does just generally feel like it is healthy!

The Shampoo and Conditioner smell really nice, a very clean shampoo smell, which lasts on the hair for a long time. The Shampoo lathers up easily, washes out easily and has a pearlescent look to it. The Conditioner is your standard white and makes your hair feel really soft and well, conditioned!

The Serum is really easy to use. I usually use it as soon as I get out of the shower. I press down on the pump once and get a pea-sized amount of serum and then distribute! I start from around half way down my head and take it down to the ends. I don't like putting serums in my roots because you run the risk of your hair looking greasy.
De frizz products

The Shampoo and Conditioner retail at £6.99 each on Boots, I have also seen that they have a 3 for 2 offer running at the moment! And I've also noticed that Feelunique have a discount on the products too! The Serum is a little bit more expensive, at £6.99, which is also available at Superdrug. So essentially, you can get these products quite easily online and in-store. The Shampoo and Conditioner are 250ml each and they're on their last legs with me now. I've had them for just over a month and I wash my hair every 2 days on average. The serum has hardly touched the sides, so that will definitely be with me for a quite a while longer!

All in all, I really like the range. It leaves my hair feeling strong, healthy and smelling nice with reduced frizz - what more can a girl want?!

Thank you for reading! What are your top tips to avoid frizz? Have you ever tried the Frizz Ease range?

Steam Cream


Natural Moisturiser

steam cream

review steamcream

vegan organic

Today's post is all about the beaut Steam Cream! The cream's name is derived from the process in which the ingredients are infused into the product and the fact that it is a cream! I didn't know anything about the steam process until I came across the Steam Cream, but apparently it is an 18th century technique! The steam emulsifies the cream. I am still not 100% sure how it works, but I think a shot of steam is passed through the ingredients which breaks them down to make a cream.

Steam Cream is committed to only providing the best ingredients for your skin and having a strong ethical and sustainable policy. None of the ingredients have been tested on animals and have all been sourced from sustainable suppliers. The product has 12 ingredients in it. The organic, raw ingredients include some of your classics. Lavender for its soothing quality, cocoa butter for its vitamin E and rose to make your skin soft! 

As you can see from the photos, the product is a cream colour. It is quite thick to the feel but very rich, silky and smooth. Once popped onto the skin, it is absorbed quite quickly and it leaves your skin feeling really soft and moisturised. As the formula is quite thick, you really do only need a tiny amount! Your skin instantly looks more radiant and smells of a light lavender scent!

I recently ran out of my trusty Clinique moisturiser, so I started using the Steam Cream in its place. You can use it on your face and body, but I have been sticking to my face. The Steam Cream is a little thicker than the Clinique moisturiser, so I have found that I've had to be careful with the amount I put on. This was relatively simple though, I just made sure to use a very small amount! I have found that my skin is feeling more supple and more radiant since using the Steam Cream. My skin is combination, but I can imagine this is an absolute dream for those with dry skin!

My favourite part of the product is easily the beautiful tin! I am so obsessed with it! The Steam Team has an original silver tin package as well as loads of other pretty little designs to choose from. I went for the most girly, instragrammable one I could see - Heaven's Scent. It is so pretty and I had a lot of fun photographing it! You can have a look at some of the different design on this page here, I was very tempted by Joy as well. The Steam Cream is exactly the same inside every pot. 

The pot is 75ml and all tins retail at £13.95 on the Steam Cream website, apart for the 30ml tin which is £7.95. As I previously mentioned, you really do only need to use a tiny bit. So if the 75ml pot feels a little small, you do have to remember that it will actually last quite a long time! Considering it is cruelty free, I do think it is quite cheap in comparison to some other creams out there! A big thumbs up from Gweni!

And that rounds up my little review of the Steam Cream! Thank you for reading! Have you ever used it before?

Love, Gweni xxx
